BP: Limo involved in New York crash that killed 20 had failed prior inspection, records show


October 9, 2018

The driver of the stretch limousine involved in a crash that killed 20 people in Upstate New York on Saturday did not have the proper license to be operating the vehicle, New York State Police officials said Monday. Additionally, the limo, a converted 2001 Ford Expedition, had failed at least one prior safety inspection and the company that owned it had a record of noncompliance with state and federal requirements, according to officials and public records.

Authorities seized the company's vehicles Monday, as police investigated whether anyone was criminally liable. A separate safety probe, led by the National Transportation Safety Board, was underway at the crash site in Schoharie, about 30 miles west of Albany.
